Perfect Your Arabic Pronunciation with Rocket Record
You can sound like you ARE a native Arabic speaker when you use Rocket Record, the pronunciation tool from Rocket Arabic! (Note that for true voice recognition you will need to use the Chrome browser.)
Try it here with the transcript from one of our Interactive Audio Lessons:
اهلا وسهلا يا اميرة
Ahlan wa sahlan ya Amira
اهلا وسهلا يا هاني. ازيك؟
Ahlan wa sahlan ya Hany, izzayak?
Hello, Hany! How are you?
كويس الحمدلله, وانتي؟
Kuwayyis il 7amdulillah, wa inti?
Good! Thank God. And you?
Kuwayyisa il 7amdulillah. Shukran.
Good! Thank God. Thanks.
Rocket Record allows you to listen to the way native speakers say hundreds of Arabic words and phrases. Then you can record yourself and accurately compare your speech with that of the native speaker.
It really is a fantastic way to learn Arabic by increasing the amount of Arabic vocabulary you know, and at the same time massively improving your Arabic pronunciation and accent. Rocket Record is great for your confidence!
Virtually every Arabic word and phrase in these lessons uses our Rocket Record voice comparison technology to get your pronunciation sounding as close as possible to a native Arabic speaker.
How to Understand Spoken Arabic with Testing
Most of our Arabic lessons take advantage of the Testing section, which contains our exclusive testing tools. Testing has three testing components, Hear It Say It!, Write It!, and Know It! all scientifically designed to enhance your recall and understanding of spoken Arabic.
1. Hear it Say it!
Training your ear for Arabic can be one of the things that Arabic learners find the hardest to master. That’s why we came up with Hear It Say It!
Here’s how Hear lt Say It! works. A randomly selected audio track from within each lesson is played. After listening to the track you’re prompted to record yourself saying the word, compare the way you say it to the Arabic speaker, and rate how well you understand what the speaker was saying. A very powerful tool to tune your ear to spoken Arabic!

2. Write it!
It's one thing being able to pronounce Egyptian Arabic words correctly, it's quite another figuring out how those sounds turn into written words.
Write It! is the self-testing tool that lets you find out how well developed your Arabic ear really is. Just listen to the native speaker saying a word or phrase, then try to write it correctly in the space provided. There's a special character keyboard available if you need it, so you can get it exactly right.
When you're done click reveal, and you get to see how well you did, and get a rating for that word or phrase.

3. Know it!
Now, all the training in the world won’t help you if someone is talking to you in Arabic and your mind freezes when it’s your turn to speak! That’s why we developed Know It! The self-testing tool that really puts you on the spot!
Know It! pulls randomly selected English words and phrases out of each lesson and prompts you to record yourself saying the Egyptian Arabic translation, compare yourself to the Arabic speaker, and then rate how well you did! You really need to know your stuff for this one but the benefits are huge in maximizing how quickly you can come up with the right thing to say when someone is speaking Arabic to you!
